What is AU?
Au File Format
What is AU? AU is short for “audio”, which means that this file type was created to store sound. It is not a very common format; it is primarily used on Unix systems, which are not widely themselves. Still, playback of AU files on Windows or Mac is also possible; several programs are able to open these audio files. Below, you’ll find information on how to play AUs.
The AU format specification has three main parts: a header, an annotation, and the main block that contains audio data. This data can be encoded by μ-law, PCM, or A-law algorithms. Aside from the programs listed below, you can also use Java apps to play AU files.
Windows Media Player, QuickTime, VLC, and others
What is OGG?
OGG is an open-source multimedia format created by the Xiph.Org Foundation. The format was originally used for storing video and audio content but, since 2007, the Xiph.Org Foundation recommends using files with the .ogg extension to store audio only. The OGG file type was designed primarily for streaming high-quality multimedia content online. Since the format was created for the web, users may face playback issues when trying to open OGG files on mobile devices. In this case, it’s best to convert your files to a more popular format. Check out the information below to know how to play and convert files with OGG format specifications.
The OGG format is a container that can store audio and metadata. Audio can be compressed with the MP3, Vorbis, Opus, FLAC, and Speex audio codecs. Metadata tags are used to provide titles for songs and information about artists and tracks. Some media players don’t play OGG files correctly, so you may need to install additional program components.
